Haanel ‘s The Master Key, part Nine: “If you want to change conditions you must change yourself.”
This is so true that I need to change myself if I want to change the conditions of my own life or the situations around me. I can not expect for things to change for me if I am not willing to change. How do I do it? I need to be committed and willing to do whatever it takes for me to start the process of change (growth).
Hannel asked us to visualize the plant growth process from the seed to the flower. What does seed need to do to grow into blossoming flowers? It can’t just blossom overnight into the flower from the seed. There is a very long and detailed process for it has to go through. A tiny dry lifeless seed needs to wait patiently underground until it is germinated. Once it is germinated, it is starting to shoot out the roots, and then penetrates through the ground to shoot up the stems. It then starts branching out and begin to form leaves. The tiny stems starting to show buds and then eventually flowers starting to blossom.
As I was visualizing this growth process, I can totally relate to my own growth (change) process. There will be a time of waiting patiently for the circumstances to be prepared for me to take steps moving forward and toward my DMP. But also at the same time, I need to struggle through breaking out of old blueprint (old way of thinking) into building a brand new blueprint (new positive and clear way of thinking). I need to keep in mind that it is not a quick and easy process but it is rather a strenuous and long process of working and growing process.
Haanel also said “Your inmost thoughts will find expression just as certainly as the plant springs from the seed.” So this is why it has been great to work on “7 Day Mental Diet” so I can cultivate positive and powerful inmost thoughts to be germinated to sprout in due time. Yes, it is hard work but so worth it and exciting when I imagine the growth and change that is to come.
So I thank God for the Master Key Master Mind Alliance experience which has provided me with this great tools and processes of personal growth and change.
